Good morning friends! Happy Sunday! Anyone break out their bowling shoes last night? Can you believe it’s not even Halloween and we’ve already secured a bowl bid? What a time to be alive. So, sit back, relax, get yourself a coffee on this chilly morning and let me tell you what you need to know:
In Benny We Trust
I’m not going to lie to you, KSR readers. About five minutes into the second half I turned to my friends and said: “Kentucky football is reverting back to the Kentucky football we know and hate.” Yep, I know that was a stupid and unfair thing to say, but I was angry and windburnt and may have had three cups of moonshine at a tailgate. But Benny Snell is not your typical Kentucky Football Player. He’s better. Despite barely seeing the ball all game, he unleashed the beast and scored the “game-winning” touchdown. If you need something to hype you up this morning, I suggest re-watching it.

He’s a record breaker.
Here’s a Pretty Sight
Oh is that us at the top?
Despite Mizzou blowing out Memphis last night and the scariness of UGA I’ve been talking about all season, I think we have a legitimate chance in playing UGA for the East on November 3rd. And I think if we play like we played pre-TAMU, we can win. If that’s the case, BBN you’re all formally invited to party at my parents’ house in Atlanta for the SEC Championship weekend! See ya there!
Purdue took down OSU
It was perhaps the most important game yesterday, and Purdue pulled off the upset. They beat Ohio State 49-20 for a very meaningful win. A Purdue student, Tyler Trent is battling a scary form of bone cancer. The scene after the game was filled with excitement and emotion as the team declared the win “For Tyler.” And if you want to cry, watch this video:
THIS is what sports are all about ?

Tears. Tears Everywhere.
Around the SEC
Here’s what happened in and around the SEC yesterday:
- Auburn beat Ole Miss 31-16.
- Alabama beat UT 58-21 (shocker).
- LSU beat Mississippi State 19-3.
- Arkansas beat Tulsa 23-0.
- Missouri beat Memphis 65-33.
Alabama pulled the biggest and best troll move after their merciless win against Tennesee.

Butch Jones was promptly greeted with a Gatorade bath after the game as well as a victory cigar in the Bama Locker room. Leaving your old team in a dumpster fire and then beating them badly next season while still being on their payroll? That’s a gangster move, Butch.
Cats in the NFL
Here’s who’s playing today:
- Wesley Woodyard and the Titans have already kicked off in their London game vs the Chargers.
- Avery Williamson and the Jets take on the Vikings at 1 PM
- John Toth and the Eagles play the Panthers at 1 PM
- Garrett Johnson and Danny Trevathan of the Bears play the Patriots at 1 PM
And that’s about it.
That’s all from me today, friends! Happy Sunday and Go Cats!
